Buck is a global pensions, employee benefits and investment consulting firm. We provide real-world solutions to our clients’ complex HR and business challenges. After nearly 100 years, we’ve remained true to our core values: innovation, unparalleled client satisfaction and the highest professional standards.
We look for graduates who are both literate and numerate, have a strong academic background, are good communicators and highly analytical. In addition, graduates need to be flexible, confident and committed to their profession.
Training and career development
Successful graduates will join Buck as an Actuarial/Investment Analyst in one of our pension or investment teams.
You will progress from simple pension transfer calculations to more detailed functions, such as full actuarial valuations of group pension schemes, assessing the funding requirements of a retirement plan, and evaluating pension obligations as part of a merger, sale or acquisition of a business.
You will progress from valuing pension scheme assets and monitoring their ongoing performance to more complex investment work, such as drafting and implementing advice on the transfer of assets between investment funds and asset classes, carrying out asset-liability modelling studies and advising on pension schemes’ long-term investment strategies.
We aim to ensure that all new staff are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to enable them to develop into consultants. In order to facilitate this, we place a high value on training and development provided both in-house and externally, and professional qualification.
Buck graduates receive a competitive starting salary with membership of a pension scheme, and will be able to participate in the flexible benefits scheme, incorporating wealth, health and life benefits. We also provide generous study support (financial and study leave).
